W ORSHIPPERS before the shrine'
of the great god Split Second to-
day swing into what may be termed
without too much exaggeration the
finest dual meet weekend in Michi-
gan athletic history.
In the short space of some 26 hours
the two finest collegiate swimming
teams in the nation and two of the
three most powerful track squads in
the Midwest---perhaps in the entire
country exclusive of California-will
parade their vast talents in local
For weeks the Wolverine swim-
ming pool bulletin board has her-
alded the Impending clash with
Yale's tank dynamo of the East,
Innumerable clippings from East-
ern papers have shoved the sensa-
tional Bulldog times before Wol-
verine eyes day after day. Every
24 hours a huge chalk mark crypti-
cally ticking off the days before the
nation's number one natatorial at-
traction has been changed. Today
it says simply, "ONE," but it car-
ries a world of significance for the
deadly serious, almost grim Maize
and Blue natators.
FOR WEEKS Michigan's track
coach Ken Dohertyhas been dop-
ing the Notre Dame cinder clash,
adding a point here, shifting one
there. But he'always gets almost the
same result-Notre Dame by a very
slight margin on paper.
Ken has been connected with track
here at Michigan for a long time.
Of tonight's Irish clash Ken declares
unequivocally: "It should be the
greatest track meet ever staged in the
Field House." The last time we heard
Doherty make a statement like that
Pittsburgh snapped Michigan's con-
secutive dual meet string of 23
straight victories in their 1940 out-
door engagement in a 67-64 thriller.
BECAUSE of the space-grabbing
machinations of the business
staff, this forthcoming prediction
can't be backed up by cold reason.
There is insufficient room. It will
have to be backed up by the deeds
of Wolverine cindermen tonight.
Notre Dame gets the pre-meet nod
on the dope sheets. But the clash
won't be won on paper. The Irish
have the stars-some of the na-
tion's most outstanding-plus fair
Michigan has a few aces in their
specialties plus a wealth of second-
ary power. Our choice tonight: The
latter combination by two points.

Bob Scarlett, playing his third year
as a Tiger regular, will be in the nets
at all times. He will probably be the
best goalie the Wolverines have faced
Coach Eddie Lowrey's starting six;
is still a uncertainty. But since he
is only bringing 10 pucksters to meet
Colorado, he will probably start the
same team which faced the Paris
A.C. last Saturday in Ann Arbor. On
the front line will probably be Bill
Dance, Roy Bradley and Bob Kemp.
Plugging up the defense will be John-
ny Gillis and Ed Reichert. Hank
Loud will carry on in the nets.
If Michigan has finished 'licking
wounds from previous beatings, the
two games here should turn into at
least 120 minutes of hard fought
hockey. Colorado is primed for the
two scraps, and the beautiful Ice
Palace should be packed both nights.
Last year these same two teams
played an exciting series, Colorado
winning one and tieing the other.
Tomorrow and Saturday night, the
Tigers will battle to retain their
advantage over their Midwestern
rival, while Michigan will try to
climb out of the hole which has held
them for two months.

this season. Maloney's 9:40 is also better than any two-mile time turned
in by a Wolverine up to date.
Thomas and sophomore Chuck Pinney are classed with Notre Dame's
Dillon as three of the best low hurdlers in the Midwest. Thomas has topped
the 65-yard lows in 7.4, while Pinney and Dillon have marks of 7.5.
Oregon's Les Steers is unquestionably the country's greatest high jump-
er. Second only to Steers is Keith O'Rourke, Notre Dame ace, who boasts a

Michigan Coach Ken Doherty,
looking over the list of Field House
and r dual meet records yetserday
afternoon, predicted that there would
be some new entries in both books.
Field House marks expected to
topple include long-striding Johnny
Woodruff's 49.1 in the quarter. The
Pittsburgh ace set it in 1937. Thomas
may be pushed hard enough to snap
his own mark of 7.4 in the 65-yard
low hurdles. Bill Watson's toss of
51 feet 512 inches in the shot put
and Don Canham's leap of 6 feet 6%
inches in the high jump are not too

and might snap Michigan's 1941
record of 3:19.7. The Irishmen have
been clocked in 3:19.4 this year, only
four-tenths off the Field House rec-
Four dual records which may be
crossed from the books include Wat-
son's toss of 51 feet 2% inches in the
shot put, Michigan's one-mile relay
mark of 3:22, Faulkner's time of 50
in the quarter and Hogan's 1:57 in
the 880-yard run.
Field trials will start promptly at
7:15 and the first running event, the
mile, begins at 7:30. The fraternity
relay championships will be run off
during the meet.
For Iowa Tilt
Michigan Out To Avenge
Early Season Defeat
Ten Varsity cagers with revenge in
their eyes depart at 9:14 a.m. today
for Iowa City where they face Iowa's
up-and-coming quintet, currently
tied for fourth place in the Confer-
And it is with good news that the
Wolverines leave Ann Arbor to
avenge their early-season 40-34 loss
at the hands of the Hawkeyes. Late
yesterday afternoon Leo Doyle, junior
guard, who suffered an eye injury in
the Michigan State game last week,
received the doctor's permission to
mnake the trip.
During practice, the lanky Wolver-
ine, still sporting dark glasses, took
a light workout by tossing free throws
and taking numerous long shots at
the basket to sharpen his accuracy.
John Logan, Indiana forward, was
released from the Health Service yes-
terday and then came down to Yost
Field House to take part in the after-
noon's practice session.
The cagers chosen to make the
trip include Capt. Bill Cartmill,
Mandler, Doyle, Mel Comin, Don Hol-
man, Morrie Bikoff, Bill MacCon-
nachie, Bob Antel, Bob Shemky and
In Meet Here
By BUD HENDEL
Capt. Dobby Burton had the floor.
"We'll give 'em h - --1," he stated
emphatically. "They're stronger than
we are on paper,-but, believe me,
they'll know they've been in a battle
when it's all over."
Thus did the popular little Michi-
gan leader express the sentiment of
the great Wolverine swimming team
which will meet Yale's power-laden
aggregation here tomorrow night.
Definite underdogs, the Maize and
Blue tankers aren't conceding a thing
to the lightning Eli paddlers.
And here's the way the two crews
stack up on paper. The Bulldogs have
the better times in almost every
event, but the Wolverines have the
greatest record of any team in his-
tory for coming through when the
chips are down.
300 Yard Medley Relay: Anybody's
race. The New Haven trio of Danny
Dannenbaum, Thurston Twigg-
Smith, and Howie Johnson have cov-
ered the course in 2:55.8, while Mich-
igan's Dick Reidl, Jim Skinner, and
Gus Sharemet hold a 2:59.1 timing.
Yale may use Ed Pope in place of
220 Yard Freestyle: Should be one
of the best races of the year. It's that
Johnson guy again, this time hitting
the water with a 2:10.9 time to his
credit. Michigan's Johnny Patten has
done 2:11.5 but hasn't been pressed.
Rene Chouteau of Yale also will be
entered, a mere 2:11.4 swimmer.
Johnson is national chan)p, but Pat-
ten is the brightest prospect in the
S50 Yard Freestyle: Captain Burton
vs. Jack Pulleyne. The latter has a
23.8 on the books, while the Wolver-
ine leader is just hitting his peak.
Fancy Diving: Brings together the
nation's two best, T-Bone Martin of
Michigan and Jim Cook of Yale.
Need more be said?
100 Yard Freestyle: The waters
may blaze on this one. Johnson,
fresh from a 51 seconds flat per-
formance, meeting Gus Ssharemet
and Burton. Johnson an overwhelm-
ing favorite, but here's a tip, the
Great Gusto is looking more like him-
self these days.
150 Yard Backstroke: One of the
evening's best, with Reidl facing
Dannenbaum. The latter holds the
time edge, but Reidl is in the best
shape of his life,
200 Yard Breaststroke: Jim Skin-
ner need not fear anybody in the
country except Twigg-Smith and
Johnny Meyer. But Skinner holds the
national championship by virtue of
beating these men, and he should do
440 Yard Freestyle: Chouteau and
Patten again. Patten has a 4:55.1 on
his performance chart which will
spell plenty of trouble for the Eli
Frenchman, despite the latter's 4:51.5
400 Yard Freestyle Relay: A big
edge to Yale on this one. The Bulldog
quartet of Johnson, Kelly, Lilley and,
Pope set a new world's record of
3:26.6 last week, nine full seconds
better than Michigan's Burton, Kivi,
Patten and Sharemet have done.
That's the way they'll lilt the water.
The only thing you can be sure of is
that they'll come out wet.
We know we like the best

Alec Templeton, the pianistic wizard, made a return engagement
at Robin Hood Dell, before the largest audience which ever forced
its way into the outdoor music house, last night. More than 13,000
were able to find a nook or cranny inside the gates of the outdoor
concert hall, while 3,500 were turned away by the harried guards
who directed the goings-on . . And evidently this is the music that
